Marijuana, alcohol, K2s and even prescription medications have fast become mainstream drugs in America. Many communities have advanced legislation to legalize these substances. Unfortunately, many triple diagnosed clients have engaged in use and misuse of these substances sometimes with fatal results. This presentation presents findings on frequency of usage by a growing number of people, effects of usage on users (both positive and negative), and strategies for treating the triple diagnosed person.

How Mediation Training Benefits Social Workers
The communication, facilitation and negotiation skills of a mediator are valuable and transferable to Social Workers. Oakland Mediation Center asked past Social Work training attendees to share how they have used mediation training in their practice and this is what they shared:
Katherine Morgan a practicing Social Worker...As a Social Worker practicing in the field I use mediation skills daily to assist with program development, task delegation, employee retention efforts and positive conflict resolution to de-escalate concerns. Mediation skills allow me the ability to better organize conversations with community members in order to create impactful outcomes and models of program delivery.
Susan Konop a retired Social Worker...The training reinforces good listening skills, maintaining neutrality and ways to re-frame situations to help the clients come to a resolution. The training also increased self-awareness and helped with values clarification. I think the training includes many skills used and needed for Social Workers and takes them into a new arena and offers depth and enhancement to skills they have. Another plus is the incredible teacher and teaching techniques and excellent materials used to communicate and teach the skills. It was definitely a 5 star experience!
